I looked up and my sugar bear is 4 months old (really tomorrow). Today I took him for his 4 month check up and he is 16 pounds now! Wow! He also received three shots today, which hurt my heart. I haven’t did many Motherhood Mondays because mentally I have just been tired! I went back to work last month and still finding my new normal.
Here is the question: How old was your baby when you started feeding him solid food? The doctor told me today, I can start him on Rice Cereal. Then eventually baby food, but try a new food every 3-5 days.Uggghhhhhhh! I am not ready. He is only 4 months and 90% breastfed. My mother watches him during the day and is SO READY to feed him grits and eggs!! I didn’t even tell her what the doctor said. She said she is going to call up there ask him herself!! The doctor also said most breastfed mothers like to wait, and honestly I do want to wait. At least until he is 5 months. To me, he doesn’t need other food right now.
What about you? How long did you wait?
Here are my other two big babies!! (I told you I was a mom of three!) This was yesterday on their way to church. My daughter actually got something (gooey-like) on this brand new dress at church and in the trash this pretty dress went! I was MAD AS (&#$&#($!!!!!!! I digress.
